iMT has created the first uniquely designed ergonomic surgical positioning system (ESPS) for the arm adducted surgical position. This position is a necessity for daVinci® robotic surgical cases and many other specialty surgery types such as ENT, neurological (spine and brain), cardiac, vascular, gynecological, and bariatric procedures. Multiple other general surgical case types where the procedure and/or surgeon require maximum access to the surgical field would also benefit from this product.
The intuitive design and utility of this device will help standardize care relating to this surgical position, improving the variability of practice standards currently advocated by professional originations such as The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), Association of peri-Operative Registered Nurses (AORN), and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA). The iON ESPS™ is a tool to be used along with institutional process improvements, those of which allow the facilitation of “safe” efficient utilization of surgical staff during surgical positioning and preparation, ultimately improving surgical caseloads and reimbursement potentials.
